Sad as Tipper Truck Runs Over Two Siblings in Tamale

The people of Tamale are faced with a very sad situation this morning as a tipper truck with registration number, NR-153-20 killed about 5-year-old pupil and her 10 month old sibling at Kalpohini Estates, a plush neighbourhood in the Northern Regional capital. The two, who died instantly were being ferried to school on a motorcycle by their female relative when the unfortunate accident occurred.

According to eyewitnesses, a bicycle rider crossed the motorcycle and to avoid hitting the rider, the relative who is now said to be distraught applied her brakes and the two children fell off the motorbike. The tipper truck which was following closely from behind then run them over, leading to their instant death.

The scene was so horrible that the eyewitness said that bystanders had to shield the distraught relative of the children from witnessing the terrible scene before the police were called in to control the situation and to take the bodies away. The vehicle which is thought to have been on its way to supply sand to a client has now been towed to the Northern Regional Police Command pending further investigations.
